- Bats are the only mammals in the world that can fly for a sustained period of time.

- Without bats, we wouldn’t have nuts, figs, and cacao. Over 300 species of fruit depend on bats for pollination.

- There are 1,100 species of bats worldwide, with 40 species in the U.S. alone.
- Bats use echolocation to find food, meaning they produce inaudible high-pitched sounds to listen to the echo that returns back to them.

- Bats have very few natural predators, mostly just owls, hawks, and snakes.
